This fruit is as large as an apple or orange, it is hard, and astringent. It emits a pleasant and subtle aroma.

Pear is one of those fruits which blooms during a specific time of the year in cold climates. During its full bloom, the pear tree looks enchanting with almost all of its green leaves shed off replaced by beautiful magical white pear blossoms sprinkled like snow. Pears are seasonal fruit and autumn is their time of the year, just the same as apples.  China is the number one country with the biggest pear cultivation and export; Italy, United States, Spain, and Argentina only follow China’s lead respectively.

This fruit can be consumed fresh from the tree, canned, juiced, or dried. The preserved or canned pears are also made into jams and jellies; there is also what they call perry or pear cider. Its wood is also a high-quality material used to make furniture and wooden instruments.
